RecipeTime - Shrimp & Asparagus Cauliflower Rice Risotto

Over the past six months I had an episode of the love diet striking. You know when you are just so happy and out and about wining and dining and moderation isn't first and foremost on your mind? Yep that diet is the one I had subscribed to. Further encouraged by a stressful job in a crumbling company and a big move, I would take any chance to be out and about ignoring downtime and exercise. About a month I decided something needed to give as I felt terrible. First discovery made was substituting cauliflower for rice. As a major carb fiend I knew I needed to try this. And here is the tastiest of concoctions I came up with using cauliflower rice!

I swear even my purist sister (rice should be rice) loved it!

StyleInspiration - A Laced (Wedding) Season

Work stress has me like woah over the past few months. So rather than focus on fun things like shopping and styling, I have been a very serious working gal. However, this is no way to live, and, when over the past week the subject of what to wear to an upcoming wedding kept coming up with girls I knew it was time to put something together. I myself have a wedding coming up and whilst it isn't new to associate lace with weddings, the emergence of Self Portrait's amazingly gorge and sexy (they even launched a bridal line) offerings have me pining to make this my look.

SpotlightOn - MealPass in Boston

There is a new kid in town Boston. And by kid I mean your future new BFF just setup shop and you are seriously missing out if you don't bring this kid into your squad. Whom may that be? MealPass. What is that you say? Let me tell you all about it, because, ten days ago I too was in the dark.

It all started when a friend that is in the food industry asked me whether I did MealPass? I hadn't yet answered him when I immediately googled the word and promptly requested an invite after reading what little I could find. (Please let me in I clamored!!)

ShoppingTips - The Grown Up One-Piece

Exhibit A (image via Instagram)
Throughout my childhood and teenage years I was not allowed to wear two piece swimsuits. Obviously, as soon as I came to college I purchased my first two piece and never looked back. The thought of wearing a one piece made me cringe. But, over the past couple of years we have slowly seen one pieces pick up steam with many a style influencer sporting these and looking HOT (Exhibit A - Bella Hadid and Yolanda Foster). 

So, inspired with the warm New England weather, and, with an upcoming warm weather trip I decided to venture out and look for some great options and below are my fave finds!

StyleInspiration - The Teddy Bear Coat

Without a doubt the teddy bear coat is having its moment, see on the likes of Gigi Hadid to Julianne Moore, the plush jackets bring warmth and texture to any outfit. This was further ratified when Vogue profiled the look and spilled the beans on where to get Gigi's jacket. While Gigi's purse friendly Express jacket has long sold out on line - there is a curly jacket for you regardless of budget.


I personally became obsessed with this look and I am happy to share my findings!
